So far I have an elctric guitar, a lead & an iPad.
What hardware & apps do I need to record (multi track) add beats and some bass and other backing?
Vocals not so important (yet)

i-rig and garage band would do it I think, but proper apple heads might know better.

agreed

you will probably need to downlaod garageband or some version of it

then you need an i rig (does this have a four track recorder with it...cant remember

i got mine on ebay. loads of them there

it has two jacks

one in for your guitar lead
one out for external speakers or headphones

thre are various drum apps and things that i have. as far as i remember they are free

havent bothered looking for samplers but there may be some. i find that one or two pedals, if worked properly can create all the odd sounds i want (a few discussions of them here in the musos section...although is electro harmonix pog mentioned...one of the better ones

i think you can

m78jnr got letter of the week in the NME a couple of months ago and won this microphone that you plug into an ipad or iphone. we tried it and it worked well. i cant remember the name but i will check it

why dont you just use the drum machine in garageband? its easy to use and about the same as any external one you would use

have to say we are getting very lazy here. for demo purposes, we just record in the room using the phone voice recorder and then put it on to the laptop

checked this

four gtr and vocal recording options

gtr in through irig
vocal imic in through irig (but you will have to buy this microphone
any mic through an amp then through irig (becaseu microphone without amplification wont work)
put on headphones. listen to your backing track through headphones, sing along with track using the ipads own internal microphone

i think this is all the possibilites

i tried the drum thing in ipad garageband and its simple and good

one thing i would highly recommend if you have the gtr. we picked up a couple of vox amplifiers through local music ads. the particular one you want is a pathfinder15 or pathfinder15r (this has reverb and tremelo in it). after years of tooling around with all kinds of bigger amps we then find out that these are perfect for recording. the pathfinder15 cost about 35 euros and the 15r 60 euros. they are really high quality, much better than any others in the same range. they are small enough for the house and big enough for a small gig. the amp has a headphones out which means that you can use it with the ipad or with garageband or any other pc music programme. just play into the amp and put a lead from teh amp output into your computer or, in your case, irig

ebay has them but they cost too much to post really. better to get one locally
